This was created as a test machine for me to evaluate BAP and also an anti-ECM machine back when light pilots first started (ab)using it, but I shelved it and it never saw much use. Getting a PPC hit and then having your target stay in LoS for long enough to pop streaks was too much of a chore most of the time. The situation improved slightly with hit detection changes, but it still wasn't where I wanted it. With the coming BAP buff, this build will likely start bashing on lights like it's always dreamed of doing. The MPL is mostly on there as a deterrent for multi-ECM swarms to keep from being completely overrun. With the new BAP it can easily be dropped for two tons more ammo or heatsinks if desired. This mech also does well against less experienced pilots in larger mechs, alternating the streaks and PPCs into their chest does lots of damage and shake for not much heat. If you can keep your target in optimal PPC range, you can do well in a brawl.
